Hunting upgrades its ControlFire well drilling technology

HOUSTON–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–Titan Division of Hunting Energy Services, a subsidiary of Hunting PLC, the international energy services company, today introduced ControlFire Perf+ Panel™ and Perf+ Logger™ software.

This new generation of ControlFire® software and hardware enhancements to ControlFire perforating panel technology for oil and gas well perforating operations.

The ControlFire Perf+ Panel™ combines Hunting’s shooting power supply, data acquisition and ControlFire® controls in a single rack-mount panel that conveniently integrates multiple surface systems into a single compact package. The new system also introduces design improvements and new features.

The Perf+ Panel system increases communication speed and reads detonator resistance downhole when used with ControlFire Recon™ products. It also introduces new automation capabilities during ControlFire operations that reduce human error and streamline the “on-the-fly” firing process. This allows the user to focus on winch control, line tension and other critical parameters while the tripping processes are automated.

The new companion to the Perf+ system, Perf+ Logger software, seamlessly interfaces with existing depth systems to generate an easy-to-use log for perforating operations. By incorporating the perforation panel and data processing into a single unit, Perf+ Logger software can automatically plot perforation indications on the perforation log, providing real-time perforation depth records needed for well data analysis.

Hunting’s perforating technology is available through Hunting’s network of strategically located distribution centers throughout the world’s oil-producing regions.
